LEGENDS at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour

In partnership with Iconic Images, Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour presents the return of 'Legends' at London Design Week 2019, 10th - 15th March 2019.

This initiative will see showroom windows and showcases dressed in their finest, expressing all the sophisticated glamour of the prevailing mood in design. One of the unmissable highlights of the show, a series of dazzling collaborations with top international names from the worlds of design, art and culture will create highly memorable displays.

This year, the creative jumping-off point is provided by the photographic archives of Iconic Images whose impressive portfolio includes era-defining images from the vanguard of fashion, rock, film and the arts. Through the lens of international photographers such as Norman Parkinson and Terry O’Neill – a glittering and celebrated group themselves – they capture magical moments that feature leading luminaries known for their talent, style and beauty.

These photographs, creatively and carefully matched, reflect the design zeitgeist in the showrooms. ‘Legends’ promises to bring the VIP treatment to London Design Week 2019, offering one more compelling reason, among many, to visit.
